Mom’s mouth will drop when she listens to the big sound coming out of this diminutive speaker.

This year, Connecting Point is doing an “Un-Black Friday.”

Crater Lake, Oregon in winter

What happened, anyway?

It was never supposed to be all about scoring the best possible deals on merch. It used to be about something entirely different. Something about peace on earth. Something about goodwill toward men and women. And joy.

We like joy.

To that end, Connecting Point would like to offer shelter. Offer respite. Offer a small but welcome pause in the hustle and bustle that have overtaken this very special time of year.

First of all, we won’t be open Thanksgiving Day. And on Friday, we’ll be open our regular weekday hours, 8 am to 6:30 pm. Connecting Point SERVICE (the region’s only Apple Premium Service Provider, as well as an authorized service center for HP and Compaq) will be open for business as usual. The music will be soothing, the coffee hot, the cookies sweet. We’ll probably have the big game on. So we invite you to drop by and check out our fully remodeled sales floor. We think you’ll like it.

While you’re out shopping, you may want to pick up an new, unwrapped gift for the wonderful Toys for Tots program that the USMC Reserve puts on every year. We have a drop box right here in our store.

And yes, we will have some delightful special offers**:

  • Up to $250 off a new Mac™ with AppleCare
  • Get a $50 Connecting Point gift card* with any Beats™ headphone purchase
  • Get a $25 Connecting Point gift card* with any Apple Watch® or Apple TV® purchase
  • 50% off all speakers in stock
  • And $100 off select iPad™ models.

You can even, with your good credit, take up to 18 months to pay, interest-free.

We’ll also have lots of other, unadvertised, surprise bargains across our entire product line. It’ll be fun.

Best of all, we’ll be holding these offers all weekend long, including Small Business Saturday. So take a breath, take a break, and visit the folks that have been your local, independent tech experts for over four decades.
